Gil’s Growler Station is now open in Ashland Oregon.
There is a new place in town to sample more than 23 craft beers here in Ashland Oregon. Gil’s Growler Station ( A growler is a large jug that contains about a half gallon of beer) has opened next to Ruby’s Restaurant on Pioneer Street. They are both owned by the same couple who started Ruby’s four years ago. Christian Senf and Aura Streett thought that opening a casual, fun and friendly place to have a drink and some food was just what was needed in Ashland.
Those of you who have stopped for lunch at Ruby’s know that the food is really good with locally grown organic produce. You can also have some of the same menu items at Gil’s Growler, tasty nacho’s, roasted chicken and lots of different delicious sandwiches.
Stop by and check it out.
